Services for the public

QUT Library welcomes members of the community to its libraries. QUT Library offers a wide variety of freely available facilities and services.

QUT Library is open to all members of the public and membership is not needed to use services and resources in the library. QUT Library cannot provide access to the wider internet and so you will not be able to log into your personal email account or link to sites outside the university's network.
